Invitation to Sponsor from the Conference Chair

Theme
"the largest Geospatial Open Source solutions event ever. you can't miss it!"

The Local Conference Committee is pleased to announce that Barcelona will host the 2010 Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) Conference, September 6-9, 2010, in Barcelona, Spain.


Discover Your Open Source SDI

Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) is an increasing keyword for the geospatial world in recent years. The current European INSPIRE initiative has brought focus to the SDI concept and it's application on a continental scale. The demand for SDI solutions has been increasing across all levels of administration and the Open Source community has adapted to meet this need.

About OSGeo

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support and promote the collaborative development of open geospatial technologies and data. The foundation provides financial, organizational and legal support to the broader open source geospatial community. It also serves as an independent legal entity to which community members can contribute code, funding and other resources, secure in the knowledge that their contributions will be maintained for public benefit. OSGeo also serves as an outreach and advocacy organization for the open source geospatial community, and provides a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration.

The foundation's projects are all freely available and useable under an OSI-certified open source license (OSI: Open Source Initiative).


FOSS4G 2010

From Monday 6th through Thursday 9 September 2010, the international community will join in Barcelona for the most exiting meeting. FOSS4G has been travelling around Switzerland (400 attendees), Canada (700), South Africa (???), Australia (400) in this last 4 year; it's a long time where the community hasn't come back to Europe. It's the best chance for any European and international entity to have a complete overview of the open source software for geospatial, to share their own experience and to join common initiatives. We are expecting an attendance between 1000 and 2000 people.


OGC

After the great success on FOSS4G 2009, OGC will propose again the Climate Change Integration Plugfest (CCIP). CCIP demonstrates standards based interoperability between Open Source and Proprietary geospatial applications. It consists of a server with multiple virtual machines, each installed with geospatial applications offering standards based web services. All web services will demonstrate a common dataset, and will be accessed by a range of geospatial client applications installed on client computers.

OSGeo Community Awards

The attendance will vote the best use case of OSGeo Software implementation in Government and in Business. and then the best education program around OSGeo Software. And No Profit organizations.

Academic Track

Full Paper and Posters will be included in the conference proceedings. ...
